“YWN is pleading with our readers to do anything they can to get the Monsey Minyanim – and the Minyanim in Boro Park, Flatbush, and Lakewood TO STOP.
People are committing mass murder by having these Minyanim.”
The Continued Observation of Minyanim (10 Men to a Prayer Group Minimum) and other Religious Customs (Regardless of Religion) Are Akin to Mass Murder – Bio-Terrorism
We are posting the entire post of the death of 39 Year Old Lip Friedrich Z”L. He left behind a wife and 6 children, the youngest of which is only five weeks old. That is a tragedy.
The Satmar Kehilla of Monsey has an obligation to support the wife and children, in our opinion, just like the families of suicide bombers. We take the viewpoint that if every member did not test negative or suffer from Covid-19 and survive, each member is a walking killing machine and should be viewed as such. Any coordinated prayer group that cannot affirm that all members are negative, have not been exposed to anyone or have survived Covid-19 is no different than a group of bio-terrorists. The religious affiliation is irrelevant.
We note that Yeshiva World News should contact us if they want us to remove their post as they likely do not support this page, except to the extent we apparently now agree on the magnitude of shutting down communal prayer. And, we hold to that position whatever the religious viewpoint.
We note that there is a Yiddish WhatsApp circulating, of which we have a copy, that tells where a Minyan is to be held, asking people to attend to say prayers for people (Tehillim). This is simply a request to spread a virus and is highly irresponsible.
We wish our deepest condolences to the families of all of the victims of Corona.
MONSEY CORONA VICTIM: 39 Year Old Lipa Friedrich Z”L, No Medical History; Minyanim Still Taking Place
YWN regrets to inform you of the tragic Petira of Lipa Freidrich Z”L of Monsey. He was 39.
The Niftar was a perfectly healthy young man with no prior medical condition. He tested positive for COVID-19 three days ago and was in isolation at home.
This morning he had severe shortness of breath and Monsey Hatzolah was called. Paramedics intubated him and he was placed on a respirator at Good Samaritan Hospital. Unfortunately, he was Niftar 2 hours later.
The Niftar was part of the Satmar Kehilla in Monsey. He drove a bus for Parnasah.
Tragically, he leaves behind a wife and 6 children – the youngest just 5 weeks old.
Chanania Yom Tov Lipa Z”L was the son of of Reb Moshe Freidrich.
YWN is pleading with our readers to do anything they can to get the Monsey Minyanim – and the Minyanim in Boro Park, Flatbush, and Lakewood TO STOP. People are committing mass murder by having these Minyanim.
